Clips

Mam enables you to extract clips from your existing assets. You can stitch these clips together in Edit mode, in order to create an entirely new asset.

Each clip in MAM is represented by a tile, much in the same way as with media assets, image assets, and group assets. On each tile, you will see a preview of the clip, the title, the format, and the duration.

To access the clips you have created in MAM, click the filter drop down, and select the Clips option.

You can scroll back and forth through your existing clips, by clicking the back and forward arrows located to the right of Clips carousel.

If you wish to view all of the clips that you have uploaded to MAM, click the See All link in the top-right corner of the clips carousel. You are then taken to the Browse: All Clips section, where you can see a complete list, ranging from newest to oldest.

Note: In the Browse All Clips section, you can see 25 clips per page by default. This can be changed to 10 or 50 per page, by clicking the Show per page drop down at the bottom of the page.
